Terry’s ‘Five Movements For Drum Set and Orchestra’, plus the closing track Opus One, see Terry embrace his classical influences and take the drum set into new and fertile territory.
Terry Bozzio says:
“I did that in one shot, mixed it and there it was. Later I was offered the chance to do it with a chamber ensemble at the Vienna Jazz Festival, where it premiered, then I did it again with the Metropole Orchestra.”
“Martin Fondse basically took the parts that were originally written for about 10 players and expanded them into a 60-piece orchestra configuration that included all sorts of brass and percussion I hadn’t used. Going through the rehearsal process with a chamber ensemble of 10 pieces when you can click your drum sticks louder than the violinist could ever play is a pretty daunting experience.”
